New Report Confirms New York City Officials Altered Count of Nursing Home Deaths

"J There's a new report today. The Governor Cuomo of New York did try to cover up nursing home deaths, New reports say the actual number of people who died of covert 19 in New York nursing homes Was altered by top aides to Governor Andrew Cuomo to hide higher number in a state health Department report in July. The reporting comes from the Wall Street Journal in the New York Times. It cites documents and anonymous sources that say the governor's team pushed state health officials to alter the public reports so that only those who died inside long term care facilities were counted. Not those who became sick there and later died at a hospital. The U. S attorney's office in Brooklyn and the FBI are investigating the matter in New York. Tanya John Powers Fox

"Criticas large John Powers reviews the old Guard, the New Netflix movie starring Charlize Theron. This is fresh air. This is fresh air in the new movie. The Old Guard, which premieres today on Netflix. Charlize Theron heads an international team of immortal warriors, whose attempts to do good are threatened by a plot against them. Our critical large John Powers is no fan of superhero movies, but says this one pushes the genre forward. Movies come in a great many genres from crime Pictures and Rahm coms to musicals in science fiction. On Ly two are distinctively American. The first is the Western, which dominated 20th century screens and created a national mythology that remains potent to this very day. The second is the superhero saga, which has become even more supreme at the box office but whose role in shaping values is less certain. Largely because so many of them in simply to thrill the world's teenagers. Although superhero movies usually born me, I must admit that the best ones have grown more ambitious. I've wrestled with serious subjects. For instance, the dangers of vigilante ism in the Dark night, Siri's or Black Panthers debate over the role of violence in battling racial injustice. And the genre has gotten increasingly bold about tapping into deep, often disturbing emotions. Away last year's joker when gigantic audiences with its portrait of underclass, frustration pushed to the point of murderous derangement. The desire to address the real world lies at the heart of the old Guard starts Charlize Theron as the leader of a group of immortal heroes. Scripted from his own comic by Greg Raka and directed by Gina Prince Bythewood. This human scale. New Netflix movie cares less about showing a CD I cities being pulverized about broadening our notion of who could be superheroes and how it might feel to be one Karen Place Andy, a centuries old warrior who heads the old guard. Ah, Quartet of freelance do gooders whose other members are played by crack European actors.

Colin says he draws on that preaching tradition. When doing Shakespeare next week, he'll star in a radio version of Richard the second Ako presentation of W. N. Y. C and the Public Theater.

White House says that Stone was charged by overzealous prosecutors on special counsel Robert Mueller's team pursuing a case that the White House says never should have existed. And it says that Stone wouldn't be facing prison time if Miller's team hadn't been pursuing. This quote unquote baseless investigation. NPR's Ryan Lewis Stone was convicted of lying to Congress witness tampering and obstructing a house investigation into whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to win the 2016 election.

first in a day went to many series drag everything out this twisty blend of comedy drama thriller and satire is a paragon of brisk miss into portion written by playwright James Graham and directed by Stephen Frears a canny old vet with youthful verve it tells the infamous largely true story of a married couple who get put on trial for cheating to win the shows million pounds the story begins in the late nineties when the ITV network is dying for a hit and your producer Paul Smith well played by mark Bonner with an idea for a series it's a big money version of the quiz nights they have it pubs the channel's new boss signs on an overnight who wants to be a millionaire becomes the holy grail for chrisley fans like Dianne Ingram that Sean Clifford who played fleabag sister along with your annoying brother she schemes to get on the show she drags her honorable seeming husband British army major Charles Ingram played by Matthew McFadden to get on the show as well he does and something funny happens over the major doesn't like games and appears like of the clueless he keeps giving right answers often for absurd sounding reasons as he was more and more money the show begins to suspect that he has a plant in the audience who strategic coughing helps him out when producers finally calling the cops Ingram and his wife instantly become targets of the tabloid vigilante ism that's the one thing Britain assuredly does better than anywhere else in the world here after the arrest Charles and Diane start facing the accusations I have to tell you that we have suspicions the

said you remind us that while most of his first met him as Mr Darcy in the cure and nightly pride and prejudice he's at his finest in roles like this one and Tom in HBO's succession in which she plays a character who may look like an alpha male but it's actually a bushel living securities yeah as in game who wants to be a millionaire is pleasingly straightforward contestants either know the answer or they don't it's clean and satisfied in contrast quizzes theme is how much easier it is to know a simple fact like the date something happened they didn't know the truth of events the service

it relies on heavily edited tapes that emphasize the coughs that supposedly help the major for Woodley the trial is less a search for justice the new show just like who wants to be a millionaire and it's true that in talking to a witness the judge jokingly uses the quiz shows trademark question is that your final answer in telling the story of the Ingrams who insist on their innocence to this day quiz skillfully plays it down the middle if ask us to look at facts aren't merely ambiguous but cherry picked by both the prosecution and the defense by the end we put in a kind of contestants chair

"John powers says that the movie stirs some new ingredients into an old formula what we think of as teen movies come in two basic kinds. You have the thoughtful ones that win awards and actually inven- made for parents. A good example is eighth grade a film that most eighth graders wouldn't go to on a dare. And then you have the breezy irresponsible, rumps like ferris Buehler's day off dazed and confused and super band. You know, the ones that teenagers enjoy. Although it's title may suggest otherwise the new movie book, smart is unabashedly, one of the ladder marking the directory, all debut of actress Olivia Wilde, this lighthearted profound. Unrealistic crowd-pleaser takes a familiar, Hollywood premise, and then gives it an unconventional female Centric. Twirl. Set in the twenty four hours before graduation book smart charts. The adventures of two brainy best friends, there's the Bossie Yale bound, Molly Zipoli played by beanie Feldstein, who already has her entire career mapped out. And there's the quieter more pliable, Amy played with equal skill by Kaitlyn Dever, who has come out as a lesbian, albeit to no great effect after years of being mocked by the cool kids, these perpetual, a students who share everything including sharp comic, timing further. They've wasted their high school years studying here, my suggest that they correct this mistake by going to a party thrown by a handsome classmate named Nick who she derides for being dumb, but secretly desires it total party tonight what let's go to Nick's party. Are you kidding? No long way. We only have one night left with studied and partied in high school, otherwise, we're just going to be the. Girls that missed out. We haven't done anything. We haven't broken any rules. Okay. We've broken a lot of rules, one with ID's state college ID's, we can get into their twenty four hour library name one person whose life was so much better because it broke a couple of rules Cosso. That's he broke art rules version of broker real Rosa Parks name. Another Susan B Anthony, dammit. Put it in your big brains on hold Molly, and Amy Dahl themselves up and Sally forth to Knicks party on the way the night becomes a cockeyed odyssey that carries them to several other parties, where the encounter other oddballs from their senior class. The clueless, rich boy, sweetly, played by Schuyler onto who has everything except friends, the theater guy that's Noah Galvin, whose putting on an immersive plane, his home, and the prema- Sankt party, girl. That's Billy lured who no matter where Molly. And Amy go is always somehow already. They're all of this might sound par for a high school movie. And in many ways, it is book smart offers the familiar split between the in kids in the outs the obligatory drug scene in barking not to mention the cartoonish vision of adults Amy's goofy benevolent. Mom and dad played by Lisa Kudrow, and we'll forte seemed like refugees from an SNL skit there. Broadens made me yearn for the grownups in Greg grew eggs, ladybird whose greater emotional resonance was inseparable from the wounding tension between young and old then again wild is making a different kind of movie more commercial less personal and by those standards. It's impressive. How book smart tweaks convention, starting with gender scripted by four women. This tale of deep female friendship, and the ways it's tested doesn't seek to compete with the guys in the raunch department. The dialogue is less course and the handling of sex. Don't even ask me about the stuff panda is weirder more convoluted and less wishful. Spilling than in the countless male versions. We've all seen book smart avoids, the oppressively rigid notion of social caste that defines most high school movies with their mean girls and thuggish jocks, who lift geeks by their ankles and dunk their heads in the toilet. Yes. Some students, they cutting things, but there are no real villains. And none of the vicious bigotry of race class gender and personal style that I remember from high school. It's no big deal that Amy is gay and has a crush on a skateboard chick indeed. The movie brims of the twenty nineteen cents of inclusiveness that as a friend remarked, feels, positively utopian it said in a sunnier world with gentler, high schools than the one, we actually live over the course of their crazy night out, the judgmental, Molly comes to realize that nobody is quite, what they seem, which is an idea that we can extend the film's director, just as grew became famous playing the Daffy girl. So wild is. Known for roles that prize her looks over her intelligence it lent grew she's clearly paid attention to what was happening behind the cameras. She was performing for she's film, smart. Well, her movie isn't quite the comic triumph that some hyperbolic, critics may claim. It's a confident debut that when I saw, it got roars of laughter from teens and grownups alike.

"And he he comes clean, you know, he's one of those guys in New York who wrote this is a terrible move. What are they thinking Bill Belichick failed in Cleveland? He's demonstrated over and over that he doesn't have the temperament to be a great head coach despite his credentials as coordinator. What were you thinking when he got hired. We've said who is this guy? And basically don't think for many years patriots in funk film franchise. And when they got to the Super Bowl was very often horrific hump number. When it got crushed by the bears as oh my goodness. These guys are just so I think what happened was when they won the Super Bowl almost right off the bat pretty early with a guy that was drafted, you know, one hundred ninety whatever people say, you know, what? And suddenly it's year after year they will always in the chase. They were getting better as the season. What? So I think that when you began hearing me in Bill we trust mantra was even a fan who who had a tattoo on his leg with with with with with a picture of Bella check unsmiling. But so I think he does get a lot of that even this year when they've has an awful loss, especially about sweep the tendency. But people say, you know, what it'll work out he'll pick something will do it. So I think he has built up that reserve but couldn't disclose you didn't have when he first came tomorrow. But I mean, you know, what he's done, you know, there's simply not enough you can say about the longevity. Of it d consistency of it. And yet, you know here we are since they've been in three Super Bowls in last few years. And they've won another two people forget that. It was ten years without winning one. You know, which is you know, they went a full decade between that third Bella check Super Bowl and that fourth Bella checks Super Bowl, and yet nobody lost faith in him because they were winning so many games, and they were very tough. I mean losing to the giants when you had a season on the line. As a matter of fact, I think ESPN is book talked about it was very long bus ride. And now, let's fix it up and said, I didn't coach you well enough. You know, I didn't do the job. This one's on me. So with the players do like about two things he he he basically drills it down to the two or three things you have to do to make sure that we win this weekend. And if the team loses he'll always say we didn't play well enough. I didn't coach relative. So he's never going to throw the players out of the bus. I think that they get that. But mostly what he understood. Is you can't tell them thousand things you're telling the three things the whole do your job thing. But he explains what the job is. He doesn't make it too complicated for you. And you know, where.

"Check Fridays with Bill and you've been around so many at standing coaches, you covered the Olympic beat forever. So many global figures in sports and pretty much everyone agrees by this time that Bill bell check. If he isn't the greatest football coach of all time. He's in the conversation. You've been around special people. What makes Bella check the success that he's been was interesting. He's very much on the moment. We one thing that will make him crazy. And this is why he's so terrible after a law. So what two days later, we says Rana Cincinnati what happened last week last year last decade is relevant to him. It's basically what's going to happen in the next game today. That's why he is so unemotional about letting players go if he thinks that he can do. So we may never know. Right, Malcolm, Butler didn't plan the Super Bowl. He may never tell us. But he is let people go. Oh that you would think on the goodness. How can you what you know Dion Lewis go? I think what, you know, anybody else go, but he understands it's very much on the moment. And we all know you would let Tom Brady go it. Somebody can't do the job. And it's it's an interesting kind of dichotomy because you're talking about someone who pre sheets history so much, you know, you would think that somehow that would lead to some kind of penchant for nostalgia or or sentimentalism. But it's quite the opposite with Bill bell. Check. Exactly, it's basically literally what have you done for me today, and he understands and and he just say in the book, you understand that if the players don't play, well, he's not gonna have a job very long. And he does talk in the book about you know, you want to do what's best for the football team. Always he does have a lot of affection for overachievers or specially for guys that wanna play. Special teams. He was a special teams coach when he first came in. And he says, you know, what guys will do it for your or to kind of tolerate it? But then they wanna start now telling them that you can do this job. And you were you happy to do it. You can be in this league for a long time. So during much what does the team need today? And how can we get that? Yeah. I mean, like a perfect example of that is is a guy like made Abner, right? Who who he loves data and data? It's hard not to love native Nur. You know? I mean, here's a guy who didn't really get to play at Ohio State very much. I don't think he was even invited their pro day and yet he impresses his Bill bell check so much before the draft that he ends up getting picked getting signed making the team. And although he's been a special teams all pro for the patriots. He he's even I think he had more snaps on defense in his first game for the patriots than he did at Ohio State. What's he's always good out is seeing how a guy will do in our system, and he's always tell. You know, the coaches don't tell me what he can't do tell me what he can do all he can do is get me. I doubt on third and five every time. We liked that. I mean guys like Edelman Welker those guys it's not a whole lot of hall of famers on that on those Ross sticking the John powers. His new book is Fridays with Bill about Bill Bella check. And I have to admit John. We've done a lot of segments on this show about how Bill Belichick and recently about books about Bill.

"You welcomed the author of a new book about another Boston sports icon welcomed the elegant writer and distinguished reporter from the Boston Globe. John powers to talk about Friday's with Bill. John. Thank you for being with us. Jeremy, it's a pleasure as always John Fridays with Bill is. It amounts to much more than wit in wisdom of Bill Belichick, but it is partly that. At least why did you want to write this book? What is interesting about the title is. And this is what I learned is that of all the days of talk to Bill Belichick and the weak and most of them are not particularly a few sive Friday is the best day because all of the hordes from mid week of God. No one's talking about last week. So in the we're onto Cincinnati mode is as we all know the game plans done he's got to walk through that day. And the only people at the press conference or the guys he calls the Friday warriors, but the five or six people we calls the few the proud not the free and most of their stuff is pretty much done to the advance. But that's what he gets to hold forth. Anything you want to ask him, and there's some special moments here his insights into the game a peek into the inner workings. Ngs of one of the great football minds of all time. What was it like to be in those rooms to be in that room with him on Fridays and to see him with as the cliche goes his guard down, at least to some extent. It was interesting as you will ask him a question. He's fantastic on three things on football wanna won the way the game should be played on football history. Especially going all the way back to Halis Brown and on the opposing team in those are the days when he has time to hold forth, fantastic example, just talking about something like the difference between a two minute drill at the end of the half. And and and and at the end of the game. If you're subtleties why you have to get one done enough, the other what do the notion of scripting place the notion of of the halftime adjust. He'll say you're getting your butts kick now why wait till have time to adjust. So he will go forward on four or five minutes on these. Without a whole lot of something. We're speaking with John powers about his new book Fridays with Bill about the more intimate moments with Bill ballot check when he's talking to the media about football. There is this image, of course, of Bill Bella check as cold as even at times contemptuous of the media resentful of the obligations to answer questions and talk about things like injury reports and so forth. The Bill Belichick you got to know writing for the globe. The the guy that people would see in those situations how closely does does that Bill Belichick hue to the Bill bell? Check. You know? I think the person we see on Fridays is the person that his friends and his colleagues say he's the guy. He really is he's relaxed. He's funny. He's very philosophical matter of fact, my favorite part of the book around how? The wean you mentioned it to which is favorite holiday. They'll tell you about his favorite costume. He dressed up as John F Kennedy during the Cuban missile crisis and the reminisced about memory when you go back to a house that good a good candy. And they would toss you out 'cause you already seen you. So those kinds of things also he's very self deprecating, especially about modern technology. We have a great photo in the book that shows him staring at an ipad and the sideline scratching his head. Like a confused. Stan laurel, you know, and he's I think he's about two seconds of your throwing it on the on the turf, and he was joking about that. They'll say, you know, you know, it's like curly in the stooges he says he gets in the car stop working. He says, I don't know why it's not working because the clock is working. So once you get them, relax. And I think sometimes I used to go back and say let me see what happened. That's sunday. It was a game that he's company's gonna win. You can never say that. But he's much more relaxed speaking with John powers again about his new book about Bill..
